Small School Initiative
Beginning in the 2007-2008 school year, a program called the Small School Initiative was established in Crater after a monetary grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Meyer Memorial Trust. It divided the Crater campus into four smaller, autonomous schools, each with its own principal and staff members. These schools were the Crater Academy of Natural Sciences (CANS), Crater Renaissance Academy (CRA), Crater School of Business, Innovation & Science (BIS), and Crater Academy of Health and Public Services (CAHPS). CANS was closed and now there are only three schools on the Crater Campus.
Crater Students normally come from Hanby Middle School and Scenic Middle School.
